5.7 Young Dr. Weinstein - Cheers Episode Guide
Woody is determined to mix a new drink. However his concoctions are either an existing drink or taste like sewer water. Drink after drink after drink he tries, until finally he comes up with something tasty and new. Now if he could only remember what he put into it. Diane is a little happier in her latest quest. She and her date, Jordan Brundidge, have managed to secure reservations at the latest "it" restaurant in Boston called The Cafe. Sam thinks that perhaps he should take his latest conquest, Darlene, there as well. Diane laughs in his face as The Cafe is not the type of place one can call up on the spur of the moment and expect a table. Sam thinks that he can seeing to his local celebrity status. He calls and Diane seems to be right. Even Frasier can't manage to call in a favor from an old colleague, Dr. Julian Weinstein, a world famous transplant surgeon and gourmet, who would be able to get a last minute reservation there. To exert his superiority over Diane, Sam calls The Cafe to cancel Diane and Jordan's reservation, and then calls back immediately in expectation of getting Diane's canceled table - it doesn't work, but he has still managed to cancel Diane's reservation. At the restaurant, Diane is miffed when they inform her and Jordan that the reservation has been canceled, and they probably cannot be seated that evening. Diane wants to wait anyway on the slim chance of getting a table that evening. Just then, who should waltz into the restaurant but Sam and Darlene. How did he manage to get a reservation?: he is pretending to be Dr. Julian Weinstein. Diane is furious. But Sam manages to make it through the night as the great doctor despite Diane's attempts to expose him, and several people in the restaurant who either know Dr. Weinstein or who are doctors that want to talk shop. Diane perseveres in her wait, but Jordan gives up and opts for a bucket of Colonel Sanders' best. Just as Sam is leaving, Diane is still waiting and The Cafe is no longer seating any more guests that night. Sam as Dr. Weinstein convinces Paul the Maitre d' to seat her as a favor to him. Diane is grateful after a long hungry evening. Sam, feeling guilty, places Darlene in a cab and comes back to have a second dinner with Diane, Dutch treat. However, what Sam doesn't count on is that he doesn't have enough cash to cover this second meal. And of course he can't use his credit cards with the name Sam Malone emblazoned on them. So Sam does the only thing he can do: he makes a run for it.
